In the workplace, decades of research clearly show that organizations have barely moved the needle when it comes to advancement for women.

 take your leadership to the next level

“Women belong in all places where decisions are made… It shouldn’t be that women are the exception.”   

~Ruth Bader Ginsburg

You want to empower yourself to receive the respect and rewards you deserve but you need the knowledge and skills to advance your leadership.

  • You work hard but remain unrecognized and not fairly compensated.
  • You are struggling to have the influence you need.
  • You lack the skills and strategy to advance your career.
  • People-pleasing is creating burn-out and getting in your way.
  • You achieve results but receive feedback that you are too aggressive.
  • You lack the confidence to assert yourself and get what you want.
  • Fear, anxiety and perfectionism prevent you from taking action.

Women want more equality and the world needs it 

The latest research shows that women have not achieved equality and it is negatively impacting families, organizations and the world economy.

  • Leadership constructs such as assertiveness, competitiveness, self-promotion and directness are negatively correlated for women but positively correlated for men. 66% of women receive negative feedback on their personal style versus only 1% of men who received that same type of feedback.
  • Women earn 84% of what men earn for the same work.
  • 87% of North American companies today report gender diversity is a top priority.
  • Men interrupt women almost 3x more often than their male colleagues.
  • For every 100 men hired or promoted to first-level manager, there are only 87 women.
  • Women are dramatically underrepresented in leadership roles  (% of women):
    • 26% C-Suite
    • 28% Senior Vice President
    • 32% Vice President
    • 36% Senior Manager
    • 40% Manager
    • 48% Entry Level
  • Advancing women’s equality globally can add $12 trillion to global growth.
  • When 30% of senior leaders are women, an organization’s bottom-line profit and employee engagement increases.
